    Thank you for you praise...of course I was jesting.:lol3

    Now let's go to the bridge!...
    I have been wanting to get one great pic of this one with the bsa at night because they light it up.
    Problem being I don't go downtown much at night and there's no good legal place to park for the shot.
    But hey...there's the challenge!:wink:

    According to Charles Henderson’s “Old Cornish Bridges and Streams” the name Tamar is said to mean Great Water.

    Also, according to Richard Wilhelm’s translation of the “I Ching” the Judgement of Hexagram 42 denotes -
    “INCREASE. It furthers one
    To undertake something.
    It furthers one to cross the great water.”

    So I rode Johanna the T100C over the New Bridge at Gunnislake and followed the front wheel for a bit. This new gate and fence caught my eye. The location is a steepish wooded valley just across the Great Water, in West Devon.

    Regular readers will remember that Warleggan is twinned with Narnia. Panters Bridge is a checkpoint on the Lands End Trial.

    Let's be careful out there.


    Not a million yards from Grenofen is this neglected, well-used bridge.

    An ill-considered trifle it works hard for its living, and does a competent job.

    Henderson has this to say, “At Palmers Bridge the infant stream is crossed by the highway from Launceston to Bodmin. This bridge once had five clapper openings, but a flood destroyed it on 4th October, 1880, and it has been rebuilt.”
